Baritone Daniel Greco is a Twin Cities based performer, private voice instructor, master class clinician, adjudicator, and music director specializing in classical voice, musical theater, and contemporary CCM styles. He currently serves on the voice faculties of University of St. Thomas and Lutheran Summer Musical Festival and Academy at Valparaiso University where he also directs Musical Theater and oversees the Vocal Pedagogy Fellowship. Daniel has held faculty positions at NYU Steinhardt, St. Olaf College, and McNally Smith College of Music, has guest instructed at Grinnell College, and maintains a large private voice studio in South Minneapolis. Greco's teaching style is characterized by empowering students through concrete technical tools and information-forward instruction, such that the student is able to make informed choices while authentically navigating different genres and tuning strategies.

As a baritone soloist Mr. Greco has appeared with Art Song MN, Fox Valley Symphony Orchestra, Fifth Ave Presbyterian Church Chamber Choir in New York City, LSM Festival Chorus and Orchestra, Colonial Chorale and Musicians of the Minnesota Orchestra, The George Maurer Group, and for the inaugural concert of the 17th International Festival of Sacred Music and Art in Rome with the Together in Hope Project, a collaboration with Grammy nominated Trondheim Solistene and celebrated Norwegian composer Kim André Arnesen. He has also performed as a chorister in a number of Minnesota Opera productions including the world premiere of the Pulitzer Prize-winning Silent Night and regularly performs song recitals and concerts, where he is sure to be found guilty of breaking at least some of the rules. A native Swedish speaker, Mr. Greco specializes in Nordic art song and folk repertoire, and has coached many soloists and ensembles across the country in Swedish diction. Stage credits include numerous projects with Nautilus Music-Theater, the North American tour of Theater Latté Da's All Is Calm, originating the role of Hugh O'Neil in the world premiere production of Five Points also with Latté Da, Yellow Tree Theater (Violet), Bucket Brigade Theater (Big Little Monster), Second Fiddle (Chess), Minneapolis Musical Theater (Tick, Tick... Boom!), Shoot The Glass Theater (Company), Opera Theater Oregon (A Little Sondheim Music), and Theater Elision (Of Art & Artists). You can hear Daniel singing the title role on the award winning concept album Van Winkle: A Folk Musical and on over 100 arrangement demos on showchoirstock.com.

On a more personal note, Daniel is a coffee snob. The only thing he likes less than bad coffee is no coffee.
